Welcome to the Resource Exchange

We don’t have to tell you that the nonprofit landscape is changing quickly. If you work in nonprofit development, you’re seeing the ground shift beneath you every day.

Progress is faster than ever. Outcomes are stunning. The art of the possible expands daily, it seems—and nonprofits are setting their sights high.

Fundraising has never been more important—or more challenging. The face of philanthropy is changing, opening new doors but requiring the fundraising profession to adapt. The largest inter-generational wealth transfer is underway. Baby boomers and Gen-Xers are picking up the mantle of philanthropic leaders. Technology and data overturning long-held best practices. Philanthropists eagerly embrace emerging bold visions, but at increasing expectations of the nonprofits they support.

Opportunities are limitless for philanthropy-focused nonprofits, but competition is high—both for donors and for acquiring and retaining the talented fundraisers that can adeptly navigate the new landscape.

Nonprofit leaders and fundraisers play a vital role in our society—and yet, many in that role can often feel misunderstood, inadequately supported, or isolating. In our conversations with CEOs, Executive Directors, CDOs, Directors of Development, and other fundraising professionals, we hear an emerging consensus: people are stretched thin and fiercely protecting bandwidth for strategic thinking, capacity-building, and learning.

It’s clear: we need each other.

We created the Resource Exchange to build connections and conversation.

No single nonprofit leader, fundraiser, or consulting firm has all the answers. The answers lie in our community.

To advance our causes and reach our goals, we must rely on our fellow ambitious innovators. As we exchange strategies proven, lessons earned, tactics developed, we strengthen our profession as a whole and unlock new potential for our missions.

This place is for you if you hunger to hear what your peers are focusing on…
